industry. now they want medicare. they want to control the medicare dollars. no way, no how, we're not going to let them do that. >> congressman, good to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. you bet. that's "the ed show." the "rachel maddow show starts right now. >> good evening, my friend. we have a lot to do next week. >> i'll be in colorado monday and tuesday and back for the big on wednesday night. >> thanks for staying with us. the latest swing state polls. mitt romney supporters, you might want to look away for this part. president obama is up by 2 points. in swing state new hampshire, it's president obama up by 5 points, in swing state up pennsylvania, it president obama up a by 7 points. do we still call michigan a swing state? mitt romney supporters, you can drop your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll has mitt romney up by 4 in michigan, which is a lot less than the 12 point and 14-point leads the president has also had in michigan in month. we also have national polls and mitt romney, it's time for the finger vision. the latest fox news nation
